The Cards Your Mother Threw Out are Now Autographed
In just two weeks, Topps will offer one of its most unique releases to date.
Over 150 retired ballplayers including the likes of Hank Aaron, Willie Mays,
Yogi Berra, George Brett, Nolan Ryan, Cal Ripken Jr., Reggie Jackson, Frank
Robinson, Mike Schmidt, Robin Yount, Duke Snider, Jim Palmer, Joe Morgan,
Stan Musial and Paul Molitor have all teamed with Topps to make Topps Originals
- Signature Edition one of the premiere baseball card products of 2004.
Each pack of Topps Originals - Signature Edition will include one hand numbered
Autographed Original Topps card enclosed in a tamper-evident case. Each card
will also include the Topps 3M sticker to insure collectors of 100% authenticity
(Topps is still the only company that witnesses every single autograph in person).
Adding to the nostalgia, each player has autographed an assortment of his
own original classic Topps cards. And the handfuls of different autographed
cards featuring their own sequentially numbering also adds increased
collectibility to the product. For example, Hank is signing a different
amount of 1968 cards than the 1969 cards and the sequential numbering will
reflect this difference.
And it would not be Topps without the Rookie Cards! Each player has
autographed one copy of his rookie card. Let the hunt for the Autographed
1954 Topps Hank Aaron (1 of 1) begin.
Each pack of Topps Originals Baseball - Signature Edition carries a $50 SRP.
